She's Growing!!!

My daughter had her follow up appointment with the gastro doc we are seeing from Texas Children's. 

Great news....she is growing! 

He said she had 2 significant growth spurts (not typical for her age) since being off gluten. 

I know a lot of people who cut out gluten because it is a way for them to lose weight. In some people though, like my daughter, going off gluten can actually help them to gain weight because their bodies can better digest their food and get more of the nutrients from the food their bodies need to grow.

Things are not perfect with her digestive system, but they are so much better and more manageable. So, for now, doc says to keep doing what we are doing :)

  1. That's wonderful! We have several gluten-sensitive friends whose health has much improved since figuring it out. I'm sure that's a relief to see your daughter improving and growing!

  2. Thanks, ladies :) I REALLY did my homework on digestive enzymes too and switched to something with a lot more active cultures and that has seemed to help as well :)


Thanks for taking the time to read this post and leave a comment :)
